Don't forget to put the coffee grounds in your roses soil they love it. What would passive-aggressive suicide be ?

With apologies to your rose garden and its fertilizer:

"A rose by any other name would still smell like bessie to Dire"

"Caught in the thorns of her sweet embrace...Dire did step lightly betwixt the scent of the flower and the pile of manure..."

This YouTube on Québec is fun , Midnight Sun . I have never been toQuébec myself ,but I thought they speak french there , or dont they anymore ? We ,the real French (from Paris of course) always found funny these accents from elsewhere ,especially québecois !I must add that Québecois ,in spite of their accent are truly fine and friendly people , deadheads from Québec being the most outstanding !

perhaps some background is in order

this is a satire staged by English speaking Canadians pretending to be French speaking Canadians trying to speak English

Quebec voters (the majority of which speak French) typically vote as a block during federal elections...the federal political party that forms power typically gives the province of Quebec more than its fair share of funding knowing that voters within Quebec can EASILY swing the next federal election one way or the other

the rest of Canada (the majority of which speak English and do not typically vote as a block) view Quebec as the "spoiled child", whom has gone as far as to threaten to leave the "family" if they don't get what they want ("separatists")

Quebecois feel that English Canada has run roughshod over their language and cultural rights in the past and have devised concepts such as "distinct society" and "sovereignty association" in an effort to protect French culture


of course, individuals are individuals and satires such as the one i linked are meant to aim at political attitudes
